Capita Percy Thomas to design Nigerian airport hotel - images

Capita Percy Thomas has won the commission to design the $50m (£25 million) Murtala Mohammed International Airport Hotel Complex in Lagos, Nigeria.

The brief for the four-star, 250-bed complex, for client Aero Marine West Africa, called for a landmark hotel that would be distinctive in the vast city.

The practice claims that the designs, which include a double-winged roofscape, were inspired by its location close to Lagos Airport and the local dress, which suggested the use of bright colours on the facade.

The hotel will include restaurants, an internet cafe, a business centre, conference facilities, a swimming pool, a gym, a spa and a shopping arcade, as part of the 17,000m 2complex.
